Since 2016, UNGA Guide has been your comprehensive crowdsourced calendar for official and unofficial events around the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). UNGA 78 kicks off on 5 September 2023, with the opening of the General Assembly, and the first day of high-level General Debate opens on 19 September. We are here to help you plan your schedule, register for events and watch or participate day-of. The UN’s role in fostering global solidarity and cooperation has never been more important than now. And there’s never been a better time to expand participation at UNGA to a truly global audience.
UNGA 78 is back in full-force in New York City, but there are still many hybrid and virtual event options for participation from afar. With event livestreams and archives where available, you can browse through and participate in hundreds of events throughout the month of September, no matter where you are in the world.
While extensive, this guide is by no means exhaustive. Please submit your event here or contact us to update an existing event.
